General beard quotes


“I'm a pretty clean eater, so my beard probably just smells like the blood of my enemies.” ― Eric Hendrixson

W C Fields portrait



“All the men in my family were born bearded, and most of the women.” ― W. C. Fields

A funny beard quote for any chilled out, facial-hair related conversation, although perhaps one to keep to yourself when you’re with your family!

“He who sacrifices his beard for a woman deserves neither” ― Anonymous

We couldn’t find a source for this one, but it appears to have been adapted from Benjamin Franklin’s, ‘He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither.’ Strong words from Franklin and a strong quote to silence those beard-haters.


“Maybe! Maybe! Maybe if your aunt had a beard, she'd be your uncle.” ― Alvah Bessie

Next time someone is throwing maybes around, use this quote from Alvah Bessie! After all, what’s the use in a maybe!

There appears to be a strange correlation between beards and breaking the rules, according to these people anyway!

Beard quote guy looks like a criminal

Beard Quotes from the Ladies…

Women have a lot to say about beards too; here are some funny beard quotes from women.



“When I was a kid, I had this idea that I would have a beard when I got older. I thought it'd be nice to rub my chin.” ― Rosario Dawson

It is a nice sensation, Rosario! And, for the record, we think you’d look as fantastic with a beard as you do without!


“A man's face is not a rich person's lawn … Nor is a man's face the woods.” ― Ellie Kemper

Excellent advice from Ellie Kemper on the upkeep of beards, something The English Shaving Company are particularly passionate about ourselves!


“'Beard' isn't really a superpower.” ― Amy Leigh Strickland

To our great disappointment! Maybe Amy simply hasn’t come across a well-oiled and trimmed beard. We think some of the beards we’ve seen might change her mind!



Moustache Quotes

“A man without a moustache is like a cup of tea without sugar” ― Anonymous

A very old moustache quote that’s been around since sugar came to Britain! If anyone tries to insult your ‘tash, simply recite this ancient line and raise an eyebrow. It’s a failsafe (well if you take sugar with your tea anyway…)


“With great moustache, comes great responsibility” ― Peter Griffin

In need of the best, funny moustache quote? Why look further than the wisdom of Family Guy’s Peter Griffin? Too true, Griffin, too true.


“Life is like a moustache. It can be wonderful and terrible, but it always tickles.” ― Nora Roberts

One of our favourite moustache quotes from Nora Roberts to get you through the good and bad times. When your growing moustache gets a bit itchy, remember this quote!
